Cantine Aurora Piemonte Moscato 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

A wine with a story. Bruno and Carlo Volpi were seeking a special wine to present to their best clients as a holiday gift, a sincere sign of their appreciation. Since there is a tradition of drinking fresh Moscato with Panettone on the feast of St. Steven on December 26, the Volpi’s decided to offer Moscato wine. But there was hardly time to prepare a label. So they quickly wrote out the data for the label on a type of letter stock similar to the paper used by local butchers to wrap their fresh meat. Needless to say, both the wine and the label proved so popular that Bruno and Carlo were compelled to commercialize the wine. Cantina Aurora Moscato Piemonte is fermented in a pressurized stainless steel tank, called an “autoclave.” When the alcohol reaches 5.5%, the fermentation is stopped by chilling down the must. This results in a light, crisp, sweet wine with a natural frizzante, or crackle, and a clean finish.

THis is a smooth wine, excellent for those that like a sweet fruity wine.

My wife and I love this wine. It has a smooth fruity flavor and is very sweet. Everyone that we've introduced to this wine loves it. One problem, I'm having a hard time buying it. If anyone knows where I can buy it please let me know. BBB3rd@gmail.com.

This is the most perfect glass of a sweet wine. It is not too sweet. It is the perfect sweetness of a wine.

I LOVE this wine. I have NEVER liked any wine before this one. So - of course - the liquor store I purchased it no longer uses that distributor and no wine or liquor store in our area sells it. HELP!!! Anyone seen this wine in the Bowie/Annapolis are or Northern MD..Carroll County area?
